Here's my 350z. All stock apart for the wheels which I imported. Own it for almost 7 years now, a 2005 model. I prefer the more sleek longer look of the 350z compared to the squashed 370z. Don't know what vehicle I'll get if something happens to this one. Seems like there's very few cars out there with good looks, power and value for money these days.

Nissan 370Z upgraded yet again … and headed to SA

The Nissan 370Z arrived on the scene way back in 2008 … and now the Japanese automaker has again seen fit to give its sportscar a handful of subtle updates.

Previewed by the 370Z Heritage Edition model revealed in the United States in April, the updated coupé is expected to launch in South Africa in the final quarter of 2017. It’ll be talking to a very small market, though, considering that Nissan sold just seven examples of the 370Z in South Africa in the first seven months of 2017.

Enhancements include new black door handles and a redesigned black faux-diffuser round back. The headlamps and taillights, meanwhile, gain a dark-tinted finish.

In addition, new 19-inch alloy wheels are on offer, along with the option of a fresh Red Metallic exterior body colour (seen in the accompanying images). An updated infotainment system, complete with a seven-inch touchscreen, is also available as an option for some markets.

Under the skin, Nissan has added a new “high-performance” clutch for manual models, courtesy of the folks over at Exedy. Nissan says the new clutch setup “reduces driver pedal effort and delivers even greater levels of gear change precision and comfort”.

The 3,7-litre V6, which drives the rear wheels via a six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic transmission, is unaltered, which means it still delivers 245 kW and 363 N.m.

Local pricing for the refreshed 370Z has yet to be revealed, but the pre-update models are currently priced at R661 900 for the manual and R680 900 for the self-shifter.

Nissan’s 370Z gets a refresh for 2018

You’d be forgiven for thinking that Nissan had completely forgotten that it even builds the 370Z, so long has it soldiered on without any kind of revamp or refresh. Hard to believe, but Nissan’s latest Z car has been on the market for eight years now.

Although a complete redesign would be welcome, Nissan is at least giving it a minor makeover for the 2018 model year, and you can expect the refreshed coupe to hit our shores towards the end of this year.

So what’s new?

All versions now get the dark-tinted headlights and taillights that were previously only available on the Nismo model, and 2018 Zs can also told apart by new 19-inch alloy wheels. Furthermore, Nissan has added a new Red Metallic exterior paint option.

Mechanically the only alteration is the fitment of a new Exedy high performance clutch for six-speed manual versions, which is said to “perfect” the downshift motion.

A seven-speed autobox remains available and the familiar 245kW/363kW 3.7-litre normally aspirated petrol V6 continues to power the rear wheels as before.

SA pricing and specs will be released closer to launch.

Nissan 370Z updated for 2018 model year

The Nissan 370Z sports coupé has been updated for 2018.

The main change is the addition of a higher-performance clutch from performance part maker Exedy. Nissan claims this "perfects the downshift" by "reducing pedal effort and increasing gearchange precision". Mechanically, the rest of the car is unchanged.

On the exterior, subtle tweaks including tinted lights, a new 19in alloy wheel design and a new metallic red paint option. These were revealed earlier this year on the US-market 370Z Heritage edition, which was revealed at the this year's New York motor show.

Inside, the highest-spec infotainment system - a 7.0in touchscreen with sat-nav and a reversing camera - is now standard on GT models; before it was only standard on the 370Z Nismo.

The refreshed 370Z is now available to order in the UK, priced from £29,185 - an increase of £1755 over the existing model, but just £2290 over the car’s original price in 2009.

At nine years old, the 370Z has been around for two to three years longer than would usually be expected of a car.

Nissan announces local pricing for updated 370Z

Nissan recently gave its ageing 370Z sportscar a handful of subtle updates. And now the local arm of the Japanese automaker has confirmed pricing for the lightly refreshed model in South Africa.

The good news is that pricing is unchanged. That means the manual version of the coupé still comes in at R661 900, while specifying the automatic transmission again raises the figure to R680 900. Both are covered by a six-year/150 000 km warranty and a three/90 000 km service plan.

And the bad news? Well, if you were hoping for more oomph from this rear-wheel-drive coupé, you’ll be disappointed. The 3,7-litre V6 under the bonnet still makes 245 kW and 363 N.m.

So, how is this updated model different? Well, the manual variant gains a new “high-performance clutch” courtesy of Exedy, which Nissan says helps “perfect the downshift” and “reduce driver pedal effort”.

Visual changes include the adoption of chrome-effect exterior door handles and a black faux-diffuser round back. Dark-tinted headlamps and taillamps are now also standard. New 19-inch alloys and the option of a fresh Red Metallic exterior body colour complete the light makeover.

Inside, you’ll find a seven-inch touchscreen with satellite navigation, DVD functionality and a reversing camera.
